They've just started this thing in Hongqiao. 134m, 28 floors. Called 尚嘉中心, something like Shangjia Center.

It should be Tianmashan Quarry Hotel.

unfortunately there's no much progress yet, only water was pumped out from the quarry. I updated some photos taken in April 2009 to its thread

China begins construction of major quake simulator

BEIJING, May 26 (Xinhua) -- The world's largest vibration simulation center has began construction at Shanghai's Tongji University.

The center will be able to test the quake-proof capabilities of the city's skyscrapers and stadiums more accurately, and observe the effects of earthquakes on long structures such as bridges, subways and tunnels.

"With a larger total bearing ability, we can set up a bigger and more elaborate model of a structure to put on the vibrators," Li Jianzhong, professor of civil and structural engineering, was quoted as saying by Tuesday's Shanghai Daily.

"It will allow us to see more clearly how a structure is damaged."

The center's four vibrating platforms will be able to carry 200 tonnes, almost double the capacity of the current largest at the University of Nevada, Reno, in the United States. Simulator at Beijing's China Academy of Building Research and Chongqing's Communications Research and Design Institute can bear up to 70 tonnes.

The vibrating platforms generate a simulated quake to test a construction's smaller-scale models, Li said.

"Construction in cities tends to be increasingly higher, and their structure is becoming more complicated. So it's highly important to test their quake-proof ability before building," Li said.

The center will be in use in 2011.
